Payments from the budget for rewards, launching and managing the contest – 6500 TON Crystal.

6) Negotiations were held with a possible partner: But it was not submitted for approval due to unsatisfactory statistical data at this stage and unsettled integration mechanics.

7) TON Crystal has been added to the following aggregators, platforms and services:

On the Altcoinstalks crypto-forum (TOP 3), after long negotiations, a separate section for Free TON was created: Free TON Forum

Payments from the budget for promotion and managing – 4075 TON Crystal.

At Stage 1, 47 594 TON Crystal were used from the budget for payments. Of this, 30 100 TON Crystal was paid to the Initial Members according to workload, time spent, and results.

In the coming days, there will be payments to participants for two contests (“Activity and Support on Forums” and “Crypto Quest”). The balance will be carried over to Stage 2 and a request for tokens for Stage 2 is planned after the balance is used.

Also, Global Community SubGovernance received 561 TON Crystal in Staking income during Stage 1.

Addendum on February 17, 2021

By this point, additional payments had been made:

The Stage 1 budget has been reserved for future reward payments:

  • Free TON Ambassadors (Stage 1: Ambassadors Selection) winners for implementing programs in Stage 2 - 22500 TON Crystal;

  • Monthly rewards for the second month of the Free TON Activity and Support on Forums competition - 3250 TON Crystal;

  • Global Сommunity social platform site development - 15000 TON Crystal.

In total, 7950 TON Crystal will be transferred to Stage 2.

Given the main plan of action for Stage 2, for which the amount of tokens 150000 TON Crystal was originally agreed upon, the balance of funds from Stage 1 will be critically insufficient.

Good job!

It seems that DOD is signed off-chain. It’d be better to sign it on-chain, imho. What do you think?


Therefore they need at least 1 TON, they do not have )))

But it will stimulate to obtain it what gives all this action another layer.

In general I agree with on-chain signing completely. I mean, lot of newcomers are still not involved in FreeTON economy so deeply to afford such a waste.

They are taking part in the promo campaign and receive some incentives after going through the step. Adding a step of buying 1 TON (when you get X times more) seems reasonable.

Plus, it is a way of a much higher involvement when compared to any off-chain subscribe/like/etc. Even without using tonos-cli but with ExtraTON solution.

Hi, MIchael!
I agree that signing a DOD in blockchain is much better. But when the contest was launched at the beginning of January, a lot of people didn’t know about this way of signing DOD. We are not planning to change the conditions in this quest. As an option - for future similar contests.

Not even oldies make use of that…


Yep, changing rules on the fly is no good.

But after Stage 1 they can be slightly (it’s not a big deal really) expanded for Stage 2.

It’s totally up to your subgov to decide, of course, just an idea from the air )

I see it that any contest should have a rule of DOD on-chain signing as part of the entry conditions.

The list of tasks, work done, goals, and results are described above in paragraphs 1-7

I agree with this. Signing the DoD off-chain really has no valuable use anymore. We’re passed that point. The only reason to sign it is to show that it has been done on-chain

Then so simply DOD signature number associated with every new member will be a key to find just like finding new block in Bitcoin.

We can arrange a monthly contest in which anyone can participate by following rules:

  1. There should be a monthly contest for DOD just like WRC.
  2. Participants have to post very new signature number of the new member he made him to join FREE TON on the forum contest thread.
  3. Any participant posted wrong signature number once in a month will be automatically disqualified for that month contest.
  4. Participant who posted the signature number very first on the contest forum thread will be qualified for that signature number reward.
  5. Reward for each signature number will be fixed by community discussion.
  6. Participant have to submit their monthly report to claim total monthly reward.
  7. Jury have to vote on their submission report.
